Air Filter

I have a 2005 Fleetwood Expedition that sits on a frieghtliner chassis. I will be changing my air filter in the near future and curious to know if I would benefit by using a cleanable K&N filter or should I just replace with a quality throw away one. I have always heard that there is power and fuel economy benefits with K&N. Of course the K&N will be much more expensive.

You don't say what engine you have, but regardless of which it is, I'd be extremely careful with using a K & N and check with the manufacturer before getting one. Some manufacturer's will void the warranty if you use it...has to do with the amount of air it lets in so the engine can 'breathe.'

I just recently changed my air filter. I did some checking into a K & N then. The only price I could find for a K & N to fit was just under $200. The Eco-Lite filter (OEM) was $82. An air filter lasts me about 4 years. I really doubt you would notice any appreciable improvement in mpg or power.
